Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California, Irvine School of Law, and Robert K. Rasmussen, dean of the USC Gould School of Law, will discuss “The Future of Legal Education and the Role of ADR” at the 4th Annual Robert I. Weil Lecture on November 17, 2009. The event is presented by LACBA Dispute Resolution Services in association with The Rutter Group and chaired by Max Factor III. It will be held at the offices of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP, 515 S. Flower St., 25th Floor, in downtown Los Angeles, beginning with a reception at 5:30 p.m. 

The 2009 Weil Lecturers are innovative scholars, theoreticians, and practitioners who, in the tradition of the Weil Lecture, offer cutting-edge insights from the field. Chemerinsky is a nationally recognized expert in constitutional law, civil rights, and civil liberties who frequently argues appellate cases in the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals. He is a sought-after commentator on legal issues by national and local media. Robert K. Rasmussen joined USC Law as dean and holder of the Carl Mason Franklin Dean’s Chair in Law in 2007. An expert on bankruptcy and corporate reorganizations, Dean Rasmussen was previously a member of the faculty and administrator at Vanderbilt Law where he was one of the most celebrated teachers in the school’s history, receiving its outstanding teaching award six times.

The annual lecture was established in 2006 to honor the late Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert I. Weil, who was a president of the California Judges Association and a true legend of the California judiciary. Judge Weil began a second career in the field of alternative dispute resolution after retiring from the bench.

Tickets for the event are $75/general admission, $50/judges, and $25/students. For reservations and additional information click here or contact Anita Almonte at or 213.896.6537.
